Do you use a potato ricer to make mashed potatoes?

I never have and I was thinking of getting one for Thanksgiving. Should I?

There are varying prices from about $15-$30+ Any difference?

I had one because some stupid chef show said to use one. I used it for a while and noticed absolutely no change between throwing the potatoes in the mixer and it didn't fit in the drawer so I donated it.

I prefer lumpy bumpy mashed potatoes, so I mash with a big fork. If someone else is making them, I will eat them in any form. Because potatoes.

I like a more rustic chunky mash so I don't use a ricer. But a ricer will make smooth creamy mashed potatoes so I say go for it! Because...kitchen gadgets!

The definition of "futz" was something we had yet to learn,

With a mixer you run the risk of over mashing and having gluey mashed potatoes.

Good idea, although I'm going to have start cultivating a taste for cauliflower because so far I haven't been a fan.

I have not but I head they are yummy. I just use a masher after always using a mixer and I like the masher a lot better.

It's not a feeling, it's a knowing.

I'll buck the trend, I don't think her kids are all that in the cute department. not all kids are cute. they have other attributes that make up for that, but look at tweedle's aiden, that is a cute kid. and your kids mel, those are adorable kids. Her's are average. I wouldn't take a second look passing her on the street.

Petition the White House to Adopt the Chartreuse Awareness Ribbon for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse.

"While there are many colors for various causes, (for example, Child Abuse and Autism both share the same color ribbon) there is no nationally recognized ribbon in chartreuse. Child sexual abuse affects so many children and yet prevention organizations struggle to receive the funding they need to raise awareness and educate people on all the simple ways we can empower our children, families, and communities against abuse."
